Fisherman quotes by Terence McKenna
#1. The creative act is a letting down of the net of human imagination into the ocean of chaos on which we are suspended, and the attempt to bring out of it ideas.
It is the night sea journey, the lone fisherman on a tropical sea with his nets, and you let these nets down - sometimes, something tears through them that leaves them in shreds and you just row for shore, and put your head under your bed and pray.
At other times what slips through are the minutiae, the minnows of this ichthyological metaphor of idea chasing.
But, sometimes, you can actually bring home something that is food, food for the human community that we can sustain ourselves on and go forward. #Quote by Terence McKenna
Fisherman quotes by Karl Marx
#2. For as soon as the distribution of labour comes into being, each man has a particular, exclusive sphere of activity, which is forced upon him and from which he cannot escape. He is a hunter, a fisherman, a herdsman, or a critical critic, and must remain so if he does not want to lose his means of livelihood; while in communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticise after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, herdsman or critic. #Quote by Karl Marx
Fisherman quotes by Annie Proulx
#3. You all know we are only passing by. We only walk over these stones a few times, our boats float a little while and then they have to sink. The water is a dark flower and a fisherman is a bee in the heart of her. #Quote by Annie Proulx
Fisherman quotes by Pericles
#4. Fishes live in the sea, as men do on land: the great ones eat up the little ones. #Quote by Pericles
Fisherman quotes by Victoria Beckham
#5. I don't have a nanny or a housekeeper, and I only have a cleaner for one hour each week. I finish work and go home. I cook the dinner. I run into Tesco and do the housework in the evening. #Quote by Victoria Beckham
Fisherman quotes by Terry Wogan
#6. Da was a real fisherman. But it wasn't the catch that mattered, it was the skill of the cast, the preparation of the flies. I often think my inability to prepare, my desire to get going, are a direct result of watching my father making all those painstaking preparations before he cast his line. #Quote by Terry Wogan
Fisherman quotes by Abhijit Naskar
#7. True religion must raise to work at the bar and the bench, on the couch and on the streets, in the cottage of the poor man and in the penthouse of the entrepreneur, with the fisherman that is catching fish and with the students that are studying. #Quote by Abhijit Naskar
Fisherman quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#8. Fishermen, hunters, woodchoppers, and others, spending their lives in the fields and woods, in a peculiar sense a part of Nature themselves, are often in a more favorable mood for observing her, in the intervals of their pursuits, than philosophers or poets even, who approach her with expectation. She is not afraid to exhibit herself to them. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fisherman quotes by Alice Waters
#9. I came to all the realizations about sustainability and biodiversity because I fell in love with the way food tastes. That was it. And because I was looking for that taste I feel at the doorsteps of the organic, local, sustainable farmers, dairy people and fisherman. #Quote by Alice Waters
Fisherman quotes by Pietro Metastasio
#10. The pilot who is always dreading a rock or a tempest must not complain if he remain a poor fisherman. We must at times trust, something to fortune, for fortune has often some share in what happens. #Quote by Pietro Metastasio
Fisherman quotes by Robert Greene
#11. A fisherman in the month of May stood angling on the bank of the Thames with an artificial fly. He threw his bait with so much art, that a young trout was rushing toward it, when she was prevented by her mother. "Never," said she, "my child, be too precipitate, where there is a possibility of danger. Take due time to consider, before you risk an action that may be fatal. How know you whether yon appearance be indeed a fly, or the snare of an enemy? Let someone else make the experiment before you. If it be a fly, he will very probably elude the first attack: and the second may be made, if not with success, at least with safety." She had no sooner spoken, than a gudgeon seized the pretended fly, and became an example to the giddy daughter of the importance of her mother's counsel. FABLES, ROBERT DODSLEY, 1703-1764 #Quote by Robert Greene
Fisherman quotes by Louis Nizer
#12. In cross examination, as in fishing, nothing is more ungainly than a fisherman pulled into the water by his catch. #Quote by Louis Nizer
Fisherman quotes by Robert Altman
#13. I love fishing. You put that line in the water and you don't know what's on the other end. Your imagination is under there. #Quote by Robert Altman
Fisherman quotes by Bob Dylan
#14. Praise be to Nero's Neptune The Titanic sails at dawn And everybody's shouting "Which Side Are You On?" And Ezra Pound and T.S. Eliot Fighting in the captain's tower While calypso singers laugh at them And fishermen hold flowers. #Quote by Bob Dylan
Fisherman quotes by Judith Huang
#15. Upon you will be founded a city, a city past compare in riches and marvels and beauty," she said. "But first, you must lose yourself, riding on the waves of seven oceans. Only at your journey's end will you come to rest, and only then will the city rise. It will be a city of eternal summer, a land of surpassing beauty. Indeed, it will come to be known as the city of the gods."

"Where must I journey? Where should I go?" asked the fisherman, staring in awe at her radiant beauty.

"Before, between, and beyond. Tomorrow night, take your boat and sail towards the rising moon," she replied. "And you will find your destiny. #Quote by Judith Huang
Fisherman quotes by John Steinbeck
#16. The frantic summer fishermen who pay a price and glut the decks with fish in the afternoon wonder vaguely what to do with them, sacks and baskets and mountains of porgies and blows and blackfish, sea robins, and even slender dogfish, all to be torn up greedily, to die, and to be thrown back for the waiting gulls. The gulls swarm and wait, knowing the summer fisherman will sicken of their plenty. Who wants to clean and scale a sack of fish? It's harder to give away fish than it is to catch them. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Fisherman quotes by Juvenal
#17. The fisherman could perhaps be bought for less than the fish. #Quote by Juvenal
Fisherman quotes by Naomi Mitchison
#18. The fishermen of Port Sonas care only for the two things, fishing and women. And there's some that are no' that keen on the fishing. #Quote by Naomi Mitchison
Fisherman quotes by Voltaire
#19. there is no such thing as chance. All is either a trial, or a punishment, or a reward, or a foresight. Remember the fisherman, who thought himself the most wretched of mankind. Oromazes sent thee to change his fate. Cease then, frail mortal, to dispute against what thou oughtest to adore." "But, #Quote by Voltaire
Fisherman quotes by Oscar Hammerstein II
#20. Some enchanted evening, you may see a stranger Across a crowded room. #Quote by Oscar Hammerstein II
Fisherman quotes by Charles Ritz
#21. The sporting qualities of a fish are dependent neither on its size nor its weight, but on the effort of concentration, the skill and mastery the fish demands from the fisherman #Quote by Charles Ritz
Fisherman quotes by George R R Martin
#22. A storm caught them on the way. The fisherman drowned, but his daughter got Stark to the Sisters before the boat went down. They say he left her with a bag of silver and a bastard in her belly. Jon Snow, she named him, after Arryn. #Quote by George R R Martin
Fisherman quotes by Lefty Kreh
#23. Trout fisherman often give away their presence to the fish by the equipment they are wearing. The yo-yo hanging on the fly fishing vest that attaches to the hemostats or line clippers is often plated with chrome, giving off flashes of light. Some fly boxes that you wear on the chest are also bright aluminum-not a good idea. I recently fished with a fellow who wore a bright yellow hat on a meadow stream in Pennsylvania. From 100 yards away you could see his every movement,-I'm sure that trout near him could, too. #Quote by Lefty Kreh
Fisherman quotes by Francis Picabia
#24. One must go through life, be it red or blue, stark naked and accompanied by the music of a subtle fisherman, prepared at all times for a celebration. #Quote by Francis Picabia
Fisherman quotes by Ansel Adams
#25. As the fisherman depends upon the rivers, lakes and seas and the farmer upon the land for his existence, so does mankind in general depend upon the beauty of the world about him for his spiritual and emotional existence. #Quote by Ansel Adams
Fisherman quotes by Kate Atkinson
#26. A lone fisherman up early looking for sea trout found the first body. #Quote by Kate Atkinson
Fisherman quotes by Rosemary Mahoney
#27. Americans generally associate boats with leisure. Vastly less prosperous, Egyptians associate them with nothing but labour. Rowing a boat is something a fisherman is forced to do to make a living; how could such an activity bring me - a woman no less - pleasure? #Quote by Rosemary Mahoney
Fisherman quotes by Willard Gaylin
#28. A street thug and a paid killer are professionals - beasts of prey, if you will, who have dissociated themselves from the rest of humanity and can now see human beings in the same way that trout fishermen see trout. #Quote by Willard Gaylin
Fisherman quotes by Donna Leon
#29. Sit around the bars, talked to people, ate in the restaurants, and chatted with the old ladies on the street. Fishermen are pretty much that way. #Quote by Donna Leon
Fisherman quotes by Paul Prudhomme
#30. Cajun is country food by farmers and fisherman that arrived in Louisiana from Acadiana, Canada. #Quote by Paul Prudhomme
Fisherman quotes by Virginia Woolf
#31. The river reflected whatever it chose of sky and bridge and burning tree, and when the undergraduate had oared his boat through the reflections they closed again, completely, as if they had never been. There one might have sat the clock round lost in thought. Thought
to call it by a prouder name than it deserved
had let its line down into the stream. It swayed, minute after minute, hither and thither among the reflections and the weeds, letting the water lift it and sink it until
you know the little tug
the sudden conglomeration of an idea at the end of one's line: and then the cautious hauling of it in, and the careful laying of it out? Alas, laid on the grass how small, how insignificant this thought of mine looked; the sort of fish that a good fisherman puts back into the water so that it may grow fatter and be one day worth cooking and eating. #Quote by Virginia Woolf
Fisherman quotes by Juliet Marillier
#32. I am a child of Alban's earth Her ancient bones brought me to birth Her crags and islands built me strong My heart beats to her deep wild song. I am the wife with bairn on knee I am the fisherman at sea I am the piper on the strand I am the warrior, sword in hand. White Lady shield me with your fire Lord of the North my heart inspire Hag of the Isles my secrets keep Master of Shadows guard my sleep. I am the mountain, I am the sky I am the song that will not die I am the heather, I am the sea My spirit is forever free. #Quote by Juliet Marillier
Fisherman quotes by Clement Freud
#33. The depressing thing about an Englishman's traditional love of animals is the dishonesty thereof ... Get a barbed hook into the upper lip of a salmon, drag him endlessly around the water until he loses his strength, pull him to the bank, hit him on the head with a stone, and you may well become fisherman of the year. Shoot.the salmon and you'll never be asked again. #Quote by Clement Freud
Fisherman quotes by Paul Watson
#34. The Polynesians used to have a system where they proclaimed a fishing area as 'taboo.' If any fisherman was caught fishing in a taboo area, they would be killed. The Polynesians understand that the fish had to be given a chance to recover. #Quote by Paul Watson
Fisherman quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#35. An old fisherman heard all this and shook his head. "This is what happens to those who don't get married," he said. "All they want to do is save the world, by hook or by crook. The sperm rises to their heads and attacks their brains. For God's sake, all of you: get married, let your forces loose on women and have children in order to calm yourselves! #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Fisherman quotes by Alexander Masters
#36. Sometimes Stuart seems like an irritable fisherman. He bobs about, on the disruption of his life, a small, unsteady figure, fishing for order. Then he gets into a rage, 'goes right on one', and it is as if he's taken out the gutting knife and mashed his catch to a pulp - every sign of hated, repressive, reminding order is gone again. #Quote by Alexander Masters
Fisherman quotes by Ted Williams
#37. I object to fishing tournaments less for what they do to fish than what they do to fishermen. #Quote by Ted Williams
Fisherman quotes by Jon Krakauer
#38. I've had a lot of crappy jobs, but one of my favorites was working as a commercial fisherman in Alaska. What I loved about it was, you got paid for what you caught. #Quote by Jon Krakauer
Fisherman quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#39. It is good even to be a fisherman in summer and in winter. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fisherman quotes by Carl Hiaasen
#40. The Thieves of Manhattan is a sly and cutting riff on the book-publishing world that is quite funny unless you happen to be an author, in which case the novel will make you consider a more sensible profession-like being a rodeo clown, for example, or a crab-fisherman in the Bering Sea. #Quote by Carl Hiaasen
Fisherman quotes by Laurence Olivier
#41. In spite of a heavy disguise, a few days' growth on my face, dark glasses, a beret and one of William's jackets that fitted me not at all, as I emerged from a hotel in Lecce, a young fisherman pointed me out to his friends and said "Lavrenche Olivaire." It was not all that amazing; if you're not known in Italy, you're not known anywhere. #Quote by Laurence Olivier
Fisherman quotes by Kiera Cass
#42. Why did he have to be such a good kisser? It was all his fault. Stupid fisherman. Stupid, sexy fisherman. Stupid, sexy, wonderful fisherman. Who was I kidding? Who do you blame when there is no sin?

Wait… Was I a good kisser, too? I mean, he seemed just as drawn in as I was. Maybe I was! Imagine that. #Quote by Kiera Cass
Fisherman quotes by Charles W. Waterman
#43. Most of the world is covered by water. A fisherman's job is simple: Pick out the best parts. #Quote by Charles W. Waterman
Fisherman quotes by Oscar Wilde
#44. I will sell thee my soul,' he answered: 'I pray thee buy it off me, for I am weary of it. Of what use is my soul to me? I cannot see it. I may not touch it. I do not know it.'
But the merchants mocked at him, and said, 'Of what use is a man's soul to us? It is not worth a clipped piece of silver. Sell us thy body for a slave, and we will clothe thee in sea-purple, and put a ring upon thy finger, and make thee the minion of the great Queen. But talk not of the soul, for to us it is nought, nor has it any value for our service.'
And the young Fisherman said to himself: 'How strange a thing this is! The Priest telleth me that the soul is worth all the gold in the world, and the merchants say that it is not worth a clipped piece of silver.' And he passed out of the market-place, and went down to the shore of the sea, and began to ponder on what he should do. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Fisherman quotes by Evelyn Waugh
#45. The Roman Catholic Church has the unique power of keeping remote control over human souls which have once been part of her. G.K. Chesterton has compared this to the fisherman's line, which allows the fish the illusion of free play in the water and yet has him by the hook; in his own time the fisherman by a 'twitch upon the thread' draws the fish to land. #Quote by Evelyn Waugh
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#46. The moment where the fisherman catches the fish, happiness and agony, light and darkness, joy and death come face to face! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by John D. Voelker
#47. Most fishermen swiftly learn that it's a pretty good rule never to show a favorite spot to any fisherman you wouldn't trust with your wife. #Quote by John D. Voelker
Fisherman quotes by Sherrilyn Kenyon
#48. You know, I met a wise man centuries ago in China who said to me, 'He who lets fear rule him, has fear for a master. (Acheron)
Confucius? (Talon)
No, Minh-Quan. He was a fisherman who used to sell what I'm told was the best zong zi ever made. (Acheron) #Quote by Sherrilyn Kenyon
Fisherman quotes by John Steinbeck
#49. It was supposed that the pearl buyers were individuals acting alone, bidding against one another for the pearls the fishermen brought in. And once it had been so. But this was a wasteful method, for often, in the excitement of bidding for a fine pearl, too great a price had been paid to the fisherman. This was extravagant and not to be countenanced. Now there was only one pearl buyer with many hands, and the men who sat in their offices and waited for Kino knew what price they would offer, how high they would bid, and what method each one would use. And although these men would not profit beyond their salaries, there was excitement among the pearl buyers, for there was excitement in the hunt, and if it be a man's function to break down a price, then he must take joy and satisfaction in breaking it as far down as possible. For every man in the world functions to the best of his ability, and no one does less than his best, no matter what he may think about it. Quite apart from any reward they might get, from any word of praise, from any promotion, a pearl buyer was a pearl buyer, and the best and happiest pearl buyer was he who bought for the lowest prices. #Quote by John Steinbeck
Fisherman quotes by David Spangler
#50. Manifestation is an act of trust. It is the soul pouring itself out into its world, like a fisherman casting a net to gather in the fish he seeks; with each cast properly made, we will bring what we need to us, but first we must hurl ourselves into the depths without knowing just what lies beneath us. #Quote by David Spangler
Fisherman quotes by Norman Maclean
#51. In our family, there was no clear line between religion and fly fishing. We lived at the junction of great trout rivers in western Montana, and our father was a Presbyterian minister and a fly fisherman who tied his own flies and taught others. He told us about Christ's disciples being fishermen, and we were left to assume, as my brother and I did, that all first-class fishermen on the Sea of Galilee were fly fishermen and that John, the favorite, was a dry-fly fisherman. #Quote by Norman Maclean
Fisherman quotes by Irene Nemirovsky
#52. Then a dark shape would glide across the star-covered sky, everyone would look up and the laughter would stop. It wasn't exactly what you'd call fear, rather a strange sadness
a sadness that had nothing human about it any more, for it lacked both courage and hope. This was how animals waited to die. It was the way fish caught in a net watch the shadow of the fisherman moving back and forth above them. #Quote by Irene Nemirovsky
Fisherman quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#53. The perch swallows the grub-worm, the pickerel swallows the perch, and the fisherman swallows the pickerel; and so all the chinks in the scale of being are filled. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fisherman quotes by John  Bowie
#54. The room buzzes around us but we're fixed on each other, engaged in a battle of who can deprecate me more. She obviously doesn't believe such a man can exist and keeps at it, prodding and goading me like a fisherman harpooning an already beached whale. #Quote by John Bowie
Fisherman quotes by Beryl Dov
#55. Sunset at Seminyak
Barefoot, the well heeled expats drift
from the beach into mauve chaise lounges
wearing trendy Thai fisherman pants
and billowing knock-off Armani linens.
They dis the local touts, piss and moan
about the tawdry and 'so yesterday'.
Devout Splenglerians, they spout
the rise and fall of fashion
every fucking fifteen minutes.
Exhaling the outlaw plumes of
Hoyo de Monterrey Churchills,
they drown in their Courvoisier
and Hennessey Privilege
as the unfashionable sun
plunges divinely into the Bali Strait
unnoticed. #Quote by Beryl Dov
Fisherman quotes by Annie Leibovitz
#56. When I was younger I did things with a camera I would not do by myself. I went down to the docks in San Francisco and asked a fisherman if he would take me out on his boat. I would never do that without a camera. #Quote by Annie Leibovitz
Fisherman quotes by Antoine De Saint Exupery
#57. A true book is like a net, and words are the mesh. The nature of the mesh matters relatively little. What matters is the live catch the fisherman draws up from the depths of the sea, the flashings of silver that we see gleam within the net. #Quote by Antoine De Saint Exupery
Fisherman quotes by Ta-Mo
#58. Why do you concern yourself with the judgments of others? Why should a fish in the depths of a lake be concerned about whether or not a fisherman likes him? #Quote by Ta-Mo
Fisherman quotes by Rob Brezsny
#59. The fisherman of the Colombian coast must be learned doctors of ethics and morality, for they invented the word sentipensante, or 'feeling-thinking' to define language that speaks the truth. Eduardo Galeano #Quote by Rob Brezsny
Fisherman quotes by Huntley Fitzpatrick
#60. You can choose where your feet take you, man. That's Dominic again, who's like my own little Jiminy Cricket, Portuguese fisherman style. #Quote by Huntley Fitzpatrick
Fisherman quotes by Christina Lauren
#61. I'm woman enough to admit that I'm completely obsessed with his forearms. They're roped, thick, every single muscle defined. I want to see him haul a big net onto the deck of his ship. God, he would make majestic fisherman porn. #Quote by Christina Lauren
Fisherman quotes by Moniro Ravanipour
#62. Love alone can make a human abandon his hearth and home, and love for a handsome fisherman alone can separate a small mermaid from the sea to the point of scooting along on dry rocky terrain and ignoring the pain and suffering of the land. #Quote by Moniro Ravanipour
Fisherman quotes by Jodi Picoult
#63. Maybe Fate isn't the pond you swim in but the fisherman floating on top of it, letting you run the line wild until you are weary enough to be reeled back in. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#64. A poor fisherman who knows the beauties of the misty mornings is much richer than a wealthy man who sleeps till noon in his palace! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by Jase Robertson
#65. When Tommy asked me to speak to the students, I immediately told him no. I was finally comfortable talking to people individually about my faith, but I still didn't want anything to do with public speaking. But then I thought about the idea for three or four days and it was really nagging at me. I called Tommy back and told him to line it up.
When I arrived at the classroom a few days later, there were about fifty kids there. I stood in the front of the class and told them I was a hunter and fisherman, but I loved the Lord, and I told them why. I went through my entire testimony and shared the Gospel with them. I was so nervous talking to them that every time I tried to turn a page in my Bible, I ripped about three pages! My hand was shaking so badly that I couldn't stop ripping pages! I kept looking up to see if anyone had noticed how nervous I was. I couldn't wait for my talk to end.
But after I was finished talking, a young boy came up to me. He had tears in his eyes.
"Thanks, mister," he said. "I really needed to hear that."
I couldn't believe God had used a simple guy like me to have this kind of impact on a kid. #Quote by Jase Robertson
Fisherman quotes by Georg Trakl
#66. Shepherds buried the sun in the naked forest.
With a net of hair
A fisherman hauled the moon from the icy pond.

The pale man dwells
In a blue crystal, his cheek at rest against his stars,
Or he bows his head in crimson sleep.

But the black flight of birds always touches
The watcher, the holiness of blue flowers;
The nearby silence thinks forgotten things, extinguished angels.

Again the brow turns night in moonlit stone;
A radiant youth,
The sister appears in autumn and black putrefaction. #Quote by Georg Trakl
Fisherman quotes by Henry David Thoreau
#67. I have heard of a minister, who had been a fisherman, being settled in Bridgewater for as long a time as he could tell a cod froma haddock. Generous as it seems, this condition would empty most country pulpits forthwith, for it is long since the fishers of men were fishermen. #Quote by Henry David Thoreau
Fisherman quotes by Terry Pratchett
#68. I shall fear not. According to the Testament of Mezerek, the fisherman Nonpo spent four days in the belly of a giant fish," said Constable Visit.
The thunder seemed particularly loud in the silence.
"Washpot, are we talking miracles here?" said Reg eventually. "Or just a very slow digestive process? #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Fisherman quotes by A. Best
#69. The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad. #Quote by A. Best
Fisherman quotes by Patrick Leigh Fermor
#70. A little later, as we talked of the Maniot dirges by which I was obsessed, I was surprised to hear this bloodshot-eyed and barefoot old man say: "Yes, it's the old iambic tetrameter acalectic." It was the equivalent of a Cornish fisherman pointing out the difference, in practicality incomprehensible dialect, between the Petrachian and the Spenserian sonnet. It was quite correct. Where on earth had he learnt it? His last bit of information was that, in the old days (that wonderful cupboard!) the Arabs used to come to this coast to dive for the murex. #Quote by Patrick Leigh Fermor
Fisherman quotes by Dwayne Johnson
#71. I'm a passionate, hardcore fisherman. Biggest fish I caught? A 200-pound tarpon. #Quote by Dwayne Johnson
Fisherman quotes by Hermann Hesse
#72. Everyone gives what he has. The soldier gives strength, the merchant goods, the teacher instruction, the farmer rice, the fisherman fish. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#73. Between the fisherman and the fish, we are on the side of the fish for matters of justice! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by Lindsey Davis
#74. We marched him to the turfy shack where he lived with his parents and while the youth sulked Petronius Longus put the whole moral issue in succinct terms to them: Ollia's father was a legionary veteran who had served in Egypt and Syria for over twenty years until he left with double pay, three medals, and a diploma that made Ollia legitimate; he now ran a boxers' training school where he was famous for his high-minded attitude and his fighters were notorious for their loyalty to him ... The old fisherman was a toothless, hapless, faithless cove you would not trust too near you with a filleting knife, but whether from fear or simple cunning he co-operated eagerly. The lad agreed to marry the girl and since Silvia would never abandon Ollia here, we decided that the fisherboy had to come back with us to Rome. His relations looked impressed by this result. We accepted it as the best we could achieve. #Quote by Lindsey Davis
Fisherman quotes by Wang Wei
#75. Clear waters drift through the immensity of a tall forest.
In front of me a huge river mouth
receives the long wind.
Deep ripples hold white sand
and white fish swimming as in a void.
I sprawl on a big rock,
billows nourishing my humble body.
I gargle with water and wash my feet.
A fisherman pauses out on the surf.
So many fish long for bait. I look
only to the east with its lotus leaves. #Quote by Wang Wei
Fisherman quotes by Nikos Kazantzakis
#76. Good Lord, just think what poor old God must go through also," he said with a laugh. "He certainly got himself in hot water when he created the world. The fish screams, Don't blind me, Lord; don't let me enter the nets! The fisherman screams, Blind the fish, Lord; make him enter the nets! Which one is God supposed to listen to? Sometimes he listens to the fish, sometimes to the fisherman - and that's the way the world goes round! #Quote by Nikos Kazantzakis
Fisherman quotes by Edgar Guest
#77. Along a stream that raced and ran
Through tangled trees and over stones,
That long had heard the pipes o' Pan
And shared the joys that nature owns,
I met a fellow fisherman,
Who greeted me in cheerful tones.
...
Foes think the bad in him they've guessed
And prate about the wrong they scan;
Friends that have seen him at his best
Believe they know his every plan;
I know him better than the rest,
I know him as a fisherman. #Quote by Edgar Guest
Fisherman quotes by John Marsden
#78. A beggar who goes fishing may use a worm which has feasted on a king as his bait. And the fisherman may eat the fish caught with that bait. What does this tells us? Well, it tells us that a king may progress through the guts of a pauper. #Quote by John Marsden
Fisherman quotes by Walter D. Wetherell
#79. The difference between hunting and fishing is that hunters seek their prey while fishermen try to become prey; they do their best to make their lures look attractive and vulnerable so that fish will attack them. #Quote by Walter D. Wetherell
Fisherman quotes by Saint Augustine
#80. In our own times, you see, an emperor came to the city of Rome, where there's the temple of an emperor, where there's a fisherman's tomb. And so that pious and Christian emperor, wishing to beg for health, for salvation from the Lord, did not proceed to the temple of a proud emperor, but to the tomb of a fisherman, where he could imitate that fisherman in humility, so that he, being thus approached, might then obtain something from the Lord, which a haughty emperor would be quite unable to earn. #Quote by Saint Augustine
Fisherman quotes by Faxian
#81. The inhabitants are numerous and happy ... Throuhout the country the people do not kill any living creature, nor drink intoxicating liquor, they do not keep pigs and fowl, and do not sell live cattle; in the markets there are no butcher shops and no dealers in intoxicating drink ... Only the Chandalas (lowest cast) are fisherman and hunters and sell flesh meat. #Quote by Faxian
Fisherman quotes by Dan S. Kennedy
#82. One year, on vacation in Hawaii, I was relaxing at a beach, watching whales in the distance, when a fisherman, obviously a local, drove up in his pick-up truck. He got out with a dozen fishing rods. Not one. A dozen. He baited each hook, cast all the lines into the ocean, and set the rods in the sand. Intrigued, I wandered over and asked him for an explanation. "It's simple," he said. "I love fish but I hate fishin'. I like eatin', not catchn'. So I cast out 12 lines. By sunset, some of them will have caught a fish. Never all of 'em. So if I only cast one or two I might go hungry. But 12 is enough so some always catch. Usually there's enough for me and extras to sell to local restaurants. This way, I live the life I want." The simple fellow had unwittingly put his finger on a powerful secret. The flaw in most businesses, that keeps them always in desperate need - which suppresses prices - is: too few lines cast in the ocean. #Quote by Dan S. Kennedy
Fisherman quotes by Leigh Bardugo
#83. Matthias nodded to the fisherman and Rotty winked back at him, giving a brief tug on the beard of his disguise. He poled the boat rapidly down the canal.

As they approached Zentsbridge, Matthias caught sight of the huge bottleboat parked beneath it. It was wide enough that the hulls scraped as Rotty tried to pass. The bottle man and Rotty broke into a heated argument, and Nina let loose another wail, long and loud enough that Matthias wondered if she was trying to compete with the plague siren.

"Perhaps some deep breathing?" the medik suggested from the railing.

Matthias gave Nina the barest warning glance. They could fake a pregnancy. They couldn't fake an actual birth. At least he didn't think they could. He wouldn't put anything past Kaz at this point. #Quote by Leigh Bardugo
Fisherman quotes by Oscar Wilde
#84. And after the second year was over, the Soul said to the young Fisherman at night-time, and as he sat in the wattled house alone, "Lo! now I have tempted thee with evil, and I have tempted thee with good, and thy love is stronger than I am. Wherefore will I tempt thee no longer, but I pray thee to suffer me to enter thy heart, that I may be with thee even as before."
"Surely thou mayest enter," said the young Fisherman, "for in the days when with no heart thou didst go through the world thou must have suffered."
"Alas!" cried his Soul, "I can find no place of entrance, so compassed about with love is this heart of thine. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Fisherman quotes by Julie Klassen
#85. My father was a North Somerset fisherman. He always said if the apostles needed the Lord to tell them where to cast their nets, then he could do no better than to ask the Almighty for direction as well. #Quote by Julie Klassen
Fisherman quotes by Rachel Carson
#86. To the bird watcher, the suburbanite who derives joy from birds in his garden, the hunter, the fisherman or the explorer of wild regions, anything that destroys the wildlife of an area for even a single year has deprived him of pleasure to which he has a legitimate right. #Quote by Rachel Carson
Fisherman quotes by Daymond John
#87. I'm not a golf player. I think golf and fishing are the same, but at the end of the day, you can't fry up and golf ball and dip it in tartar sauce. So I'm a fisherman. #Quote by Daymond John
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#88. Priest is a fisherman and Holy Book is a fishook. We either refuse to be a fish or we burn in the frying pan of irrationality! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by Ed Zern
#89. Most fishing rods work better if you grasp them at the thick end. If you grasp a fisherman at the thick end, you may get a thumb bit off. #Quote by Ed Zern
Fisherman quotes by Fitz-Greene Halleck
#90. There is an evening twilight of the heart, When its wild passion-waves are lulled to rest. #Quote by Fitz-Greene Halleck
Fisherman quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#91. Anyone can be a fisherman in May. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Fisherman quotes by Louise Penny
#92. And what else did you find?'
'God' he said simple. 'In a diner.'
'What was he eating?'
The question was so unexpected Gamache hesitated then laughed.
'Lemon meringue pie.'
'And how do you know He was God?'
...
'I don't,' he admitted. 'He might have been just a fisherman. He was certainly dressed like one. But he looked across the room at me with such tenderness, such love, I was staggered ... then he turned back to me with the most radiant smile I'd ever seen. I was filled with joy. #Quote by Louise Penny
Fisherman quotes by Norman Maclean
#93. If you push me far enough, all I really know is that he was a fine fisherman."
"You know more than that," my father said. "He was beautiful. #Quote by Norman Maclean

#94. Full moon is a good fisherman; every eyes are easily caught in his net! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by Charles Clover
#95. Bycatch and discards are a fact of life to a fisherman. There is no fishing method that catches only the quarry. ...The UN Food and Agriculture Organization estimates that about a third of what is caught worldwide, some 29 million tons, goes over the side. This takes what is hauled from the sea to around 132 million tons a year. Add to that the number of organisms that are killed or damaged by net, line, or trap and are never landed--such as whales, porpoises, turtles, and birds--and the number of animals destroyed on the bottom, and the total catch by fishermen reaches something more like 220 million tons a year. Consider that much of the weight of palatable fish is head, cartilage, bone, and offal, which goes over the side or is thrown away by processors. Consider also that about 44 million tons of fish are caught to make industrial products and food for farmed fish. Consider that some of the palatable fish caught will be turned into products for other than human consumption--as cat food, for instance. Consider that there may be an element of waste because some fish will not sell. Taking all these things into account, it is possible to conclude that the amount of protein eaten by someone or something is maybe less than 20 percent of the 104 million tons landed, and only 10 percent of the amount of marine animals destroyed annually in the oceans. These are rough figures, but, given a wide margin of error, they are about right. So catching wild fish is a wasteful business. #Quote by Charles Clover
Fisherman quotes by Neal A. Maxwell
#96. Having faith in the plan of salvation includes steadfastly refusing to be diverted from our true identities and responsibilities. In the brief season of our existence on earth we may serve as a plumber, professor, farmer, physician, mechanic, bookkeeper, or teacher. These are useful activities and honorable designations; but a temporary vocation is not reflective of our true identities. Matthew was a tax collector, Luke a physician, and Peter a fisherman. In a salvational sense, 'so what!' #Quote by Neal A. Maxwell
Fisherman quotes by Martial
#97. Can the fish love the fisherman?
[Lat., Piscatorem piscis amare potest?] #Quote by Martial
Fisherman quotes by Yaa Gyasi
#98. When someone does wrong, whether it is you or me, whether it is mother or father, whether it is the Gold Coast man or the white man, it is like a fisherman casting a net into the water. He keeps only the one or two fish that he needs to feed himself and puts the rest back in the water, thinking that their lives will go back to normal. No one forgets that they were once captive, even if they are now free. But still, Yaw, you have to let yourself be free. #Quote by Yaa Gyasi
Fisherman quotes by Steve Berry
#99. He'd was called first Cephas in Aramaic, then Petros, rock, in Greek. Eventually he became Peter and the Gospels proclaimed that Christ said, Upon this rock I shall build my church.'
The testimony was the first ancient account he'd ever read that made sense. No supernatural events or miraculous apparitions. No actions contrary to history or logic. No inconsistent details that cast doubt on credibility. Just the testimony by a simple fisherman of how he'd borne witness to a great man, one whose good works and kind words lived on after his death, enough to inspire him to continue the cause. #Quote by Steve Berry
Fisherman quotes by Anthony Bourdain
#100. A mama's boy, loner, intellectual, voracious reader and gourmand, Dimitri was a man of esoteric skills and appetites: a gambler, philosopher, gardener, fly-fisherman, fluent in Russian and German as well as having an amazing command of English. He loved antiquated phrases, dry sarcasm, military jargon, regional dialect, and the New York Times crossword puzzle - to which he was hopelessly addicted. #Quote by Anthony Bourdain
Fisherman quotes by John Gierach
#101. Fishing in rainy conditions may make fisherman seem crazy to the great mass of unimaginative people, but then few fishermen care what they think #Quote by John Gierach
Fisherman quotes by Robert Greene

Fisherman quotes by Lee Wulff
#103. Catching fish is not a mental game between fish and angler. A 'smart' trout is only smarter than other trout, not smarter than a fisherman. An angler must take the puzzle of the day's conditions, and matching those conditions and his knowledge of the fish come up with a good catch. He competes with a concept, not with a fish's brain. #Quote by Lee Wulff
Fisherman quotes by Jarod Kintz
#104. I'm thinking about becoming a farmer and a fisherman - a hunter of swimming plants. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Fisherman quotes by Ally Carter
#105. Mariano the Second had been the son of a fisherman, but he'd suffered from an unfortunate tendency toward seasickness and was forced to find a respectable career that could be safely conducted on dry land. So he built boats.
Mariano the Third built bigger boats.
And by the time a girl from a very different type of family business arrived at their shopfront on the Mediterranean coast, Mariano the Fourth had built and patented at least half a dozen of the most advanced (and justifiably expensive) watercrafts in the world. #Quote by Ally Carter
Fisherman quotes by Tom Felton
#106. I'd like to own my own garage and my own fishery. I'd also like to be a professional fisherman. But I'll take whatever happens. #Quote by Tom Felton
Fisherman quotes by C.S. Lewis
#107. He was very interested in everything that lay to the North because no one ever went that way and he was never allowed to go there himself. When he was sitting out of doors mending the nets, and all alone, he would often look eagerly to the North. One could see nothing but a grassy slope running up to a level ridge and beyond that the sky with perhaps a few birds in it.

Sometimes if Arsheesh was there Shasta would say, 'O my Father, what is there beyond that hill?' And then if the fisherman was in a bad temper he would box Shasta's ears and tell him to attend to his work. Or if he was in a peaceable mood he would say, "O my son, do not allow your mind to be distracted by idle questions. For one of the poets has said, 'Application to business is the root of prosperity, but those who ask questions that do not concern them are steering the ship of folly towards the rock of indigence'.

Shasta thought that beyond the hill there must be some delightful secret which his father wished to hide from him. In reality, however, the fisherman talked like this because he didn't know what lay to the North. Neither did he care. He had a very practical mind. #Quote by C.S. Lewis
Fisherman quotes by Ed Zern
#108. Fly fishing or any other sport fishing, is an end in itself and not a game or competition among fishermen ... #Quote by Ed Zern
Fisherman quotes by Diann Ducharme
#109. Words had failed us that night, and I'd welcomed the silence. Words had escaped me the next morning as well but in a different way, when I came to realize that I was married to a fisherman for the rest of my days."--Abigail Whimble, Return to the Outer Banks House #Quote by Diann Ducharme
Fisherman quotes by Linda Greenlaw
#110. I am a woman. I am a fisherman. As I have said, I am not a fisherwoman, fisherlady, or fishergirl. #Quote by Linda Greenlaw
Fisherman quotes by Martin Luther
#111. If the gospel was of a nature to be propagated or maintained by the power of the world, God would not have intrusted it to fishermen. To defend the gospel appertains not to the princes and pontiffs of this world. #Quote by Martin Luther
Fisherman quotes by Willie Robertson
#112. Korie: Ray's daughter, Rachel, and I were best friends, and they were going to Phil's house for dinner one night. They invited me to go along. I still remembered Willie from camp, so needless to say, I was just dying to go. I begged my parents to let me go with them. They said yes! I even remember what I wore at Willie's house-a black top with fluorescent green earrings. Don't judge…it was the eighties.
When Rachel and I got to the Robertsons' house, the first thing Phil said to us was: "Have you met my boys, Jason Silas and Willie Jess? They'll make good husbands someday. They're good hunters and fisherman." I was so nervous. I couldn't believe this was happening. The other thing I remember about walking in their home was that Phil and Kay had a sign on the door that said, "Honeymoon in progress." Phil and Kay have never been shy about their honeymooning…another thing that shocked me about their family.
Once we had eaten, Willie took us back to his room, which was actually the laundry room. He made us laugh the whole time. He would stick his thumb in his mouth and pretend that he was blowing up his muscles. He did acupressure tricks and showed us our pressure points. This was all very impressive to a couple of fifth-grade girls.

After a while, I decided I was going to try to really impress Korie. I started punching the tiles on the ceiling of the laundry room, which was a trick one of my buddies taught me. I'd rear back and just punch my fist through the #Quote by Willie Robertson
Fisherman quotes by Karen Russell
#113. Samson had a knack for this kind of insight: he was like a grinning fisherman who could wrench a secret from the depths of your chest and dangle it in front of you, revealing it to be nothing but a common, mud–colored fish. #Quote by Karen Russell
Fisherman quotes by Jarod Kintz
#114. Rot figured why be a little fish in a big pond, or a big fish in a little pond, when you could be a fisherman in a boat on any pond drinking beer and living life the way God intended.

Rot was deeply religious. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Fisherman quotes by Louis R. Pisano
#115. Before 1975, if you knew the name Howard Sackler it was because he was the author behind the 1969 Broadway play The Great White Hope, which won Sackler the Tony and New York Drama Critics Circle award as the year's Best Play as well as the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. A friend of film producer David Brown, Sackler accepted the offer to do a re-write on Jaws author Peter Benchley's script for the film version of his novel. Sackler's main contribution to the story was the back story that the shark fisherman, Quint, derived his hatred for sharks from having survived the sinking of the U.S.S. Indianapolis in July of 1945 (in the film, Quint errantly states the date as "June the 29th, 1945"). #Quote by Louis R. Pisano
Fisherman quotes by Jarod Kintz
#116. I'd hang a walrus on my wall, and I'd name him Russ. But I'm not a hunter - I'm a lover and a fisherman. Dinner will be ready in ten minutes, if you want to take off your pants and wash up. #Quote by Jarod Kintz
Fisherman quotes by Julia Glass
#117. It's this time of year when Kit mist rise in the dark, as if we're a farmer or a fisherman, someone whose livelihood depends on beating the dawn, convincing himself that what looks like night is actually morning. #Quote by Julia Glass
Fisherman quotes by W. Bruce Cameron
#118. Funeral notice in the paper." "I still don't know who you're talking about," the other ice fisherman groused. "Dressed funny," the guy at the other table recalled. #Quote by W. Bruce Cameron
Fisherman quotes by Oscar Wilde
#119. And his Soul besought him to depart, but he would not, so great was his love. And the sea came nearer, and sought to cover him with its waves, and when he knew that the end was at hand he kissed with mad lips the cold lips of the Mermaid, and the heart that was within him brake. And as through the fullness of his love his heart did break, the Soul found an entrance and entered in, and was one with him even as before. And the sea covered the young Fisherman with its waves. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Fisherman quotes by Markham Shaw Pyle
#120. After all, Christmastide is the time of year for warming brandies, for assertive burgundies and meaty Medoc wines, and for gladsome whiskies. And an Islay malt: well, this is the octave of St Andrew, and you will doubtless recall that he is not only the patron saint of Alba, of Scotland, but was also a fisherman. How better to toast my favorite apostle (he being all the things I personally am not, starting with humble and self-effacing) than with the sea-salty dram of an Islay whisky? #Quote by Markham Shaw Pyle
Fisherman quotes by Amy Tan
#121. And although my father was not a fisherman but a pharmacist's assistant who had once been a doctor in China, he believed in his nengkan, his ability to do anything he put his mind to. My mother believed she had nengkan to cook anything my father had a mind to catch. It was this belief in their nengkan that had brought my parents to America. It had enabled them to have seven children and buy a house in the Sunset district with very little money. It had given them the confidence to believe their luck would never run out, that God was on their side, that the house gods had only benevolent things to report and our ancestors were pleased, that lifetime warranties meant our lucky streak would never break, that all the elements were in balance, the right amount of wind and water. #Quote by Amy Tan
Fisherman quotes by Wilfred Grenfell
#122. I have found more inspiration in the cottages of fishermen than in the palaces of the rich. #Quote by Wilfred Grenfell
Fisherman quotes by Vita Sackville-West
#123. The Heron

Every morning at dawn the heron comes winging across the woods to rob my lake of its trout. It is not a very large lake, and there are not very many trout; soon there will be none at all if the heron continues to breakfast in this fashion. I would not grudge him a reasonable meal occasionally, but he is an indiscriminate and extravagant fisherman who pulls out trout too large for him to swallow and strews them mangled on the bank. The good fisherman, the honest angler, returns his smaller catch to the water; the heron acts contrariwise, failing to return those which are too big to be of any use to him. The other day he was seen struggling with one half way down his throat; and in spite of my liking for herons, especially when they frequent other people's lakes and streams, I confess I wish it had choked him. #Quote by Vita Sackville-West
Fisherman quotes by Benjamin Franklin
#124. Death is a fisherman, the world we see His fish-pond is, and we the fishes be; His net some general sickness; howe'er he Is not so kind as other fishers be; For if they take one of the smaller fry, They throw him in again, he shall not die: But death is sure to kill all he can get, And all is fish with him that comes to net. #Quote by Benjamin Franklin
Fisherman quotes by Sarah Maguire
#125. Perfect Timing"

The night I fell in love with you I lost my watch:
stripping off at the sea's edge, it fell into the dark
as I swam out into a night thick with stars,
with fisherman calling from one lit boat to another
of their catches and harbours, leaving for the dawn.
Imagine it now, plunged deep in cool sand, still hidden
years later, grains ticking over it one by one -
as your hands slide into me and I move to their pulse. #Quote by Sarah Maguire
Fisherman quotes by Eleanor Lerman
#126. This is what life does. It lets you walk up to
the store to buy breakfast and the paper, on a
stiff knee. It lets you choose the way you have
your eggs, your coffee. Then it sits a fisherman
down beside you at the counter who says, Last night,
the channel was full of starfish. And you wonder,
is this a message, finally, or just another day? #Quote by Eleanor Lerman
Fisherman quotes by Patrick F. McManus
#127. There is no greater fan of fly fishing than the worm. #Quote by Patrick F. McManus
Fisherman quotes by Friedrich De La Motte Fouqué
#128. You must know, my loved one, that there are beings in the elements which almost appear like mortals, and which rarely allow themselves to become visible to your race. Wonderful salamanders glitter and sport in the flames; lean and malicious gnomes dwell deep within the earth; spirits, belonging to the air, wander through the forests; and a vast family of water spirits live in the lakes and streams and brooks. In resounding domes of crystal, through which the sky looks in with its sun and stars, these latter spirits find their beautiful abode; lofty trees of coral with blue and crimson fruits gleam in their gardens; they wander over the pure sand of the sea, and among lovely variegated shells, and amid all exquisite treasures of the old world, which the present is no longer worthy to enjoy; all these the floods have covered with their secret veils of silver, and the noble monuments sparkle below, stately and solemn, and bedewed by the loving waters which allure from them many a beautiful moss-flower and entwining cluster of sea grass. Those, however, who dwell there, are very fair and lovely to behold, and for the most part, are more beautiful than human beings. Many a fisherman has been so fortunate as to surprise some tender mermaid, as she rose above the waters and sang. He would then tell afar of her beauty, and such wonderful beings have been given the name of Undines. You, however, are now actually beholding an Undine. #Quote by Friedrich De La Motte Fouqué
Fisherman quotes by George H. Harrison
#129. Just as a fisherman cannot catch fish unless his line is in the water, a wildlife photographer cannot shoot great wildlife images unless he or she is out there with camera in hand and the knowledge of what to do then the 'magnificent moment' occurs. #Quote by George H. Harrison
Fisherman quotes by Robert Lowell
#130. Salem"

In salem seasick spindrift drifts or skips
to the canvas flapping on the seaward panes
until the knitting sailor stabs at ships
nosing like sheep of Morpheus through his brain's
asylum. Seaman, seaman, how the draft
lashes the oily slick about your head,
beating up whitecaps! Seaman, Charon's raft
dumps its damned goods into the harbor-bed,--
There sewage sickens the rebellious seas.
Remember, seaman, Salem fisherman
Once hung their nimble fleets on the Great Banks.
Where was it that New England bred the men
who quartered the Leviathan's fat flanks
and fought the British Lion to his knees? #Quote by Robert Lowell
Fisherman quotes by Czeslaw Milosz

Fisherman quotes by Thomas McGuane
#132. We have reached the time in the life of the planet, and humanity's demand upon it, when every fisherman will have to be a river-keeper, a steward of marine shallows, a watchman on the high seas. We are beyond having to put back what we have taken out. We must put back more than we take out. #Quote by Thomas McGuane
Fisherman quotes by Rajneesh
#133. It does not matter whether you paint, sculpt, or make shoes, whether you are a gardener, a farmer, a fisherman, a carpenter-it does not matter. What matters is, are you putting your very soul into what you are creating? Then your creative products have something of the quality of divine. #Quote by Rajneesh
Fisherman quotes by Gary A. Klein
#134. I love rainy and bad-weather days because this type of weather gives me a mental advantage, especially when I'm fishing in a tournament. When the weather is inclement, most fishermen start thinking of reasons why they can't catch bass. But, because I fish so often in bad weather, I'm thinking of all the reasons I can catch bass in bad weather conditions. #Quote by Gary A. Klein
Fisherman quotes by Sameh Elsayed
#135. When the fisherman bait the hooks, through them into the sea and sits looking at horizon, do not think he is doing nothing. He and all his senses are fully tensed. His eyes monitors the line, his ears picks the slightest sound of the rod, his heart beats in harmony with the waves and his mind plans further than you think #Quote by Sameh Elsayed
Fisherman quotes by Ed Zern

Fisherman quotes by John D. Voelker
#137. Most fisherman, including this one, cling to their pet stupidities as they would to a battered briar or an old jacket; and their dogged persistence in wrong methods and general wrong-headedness finally wins the a sort of grudging admiration, if not many fish. #Quote by John D. Voelker
Fisherman quotes by Norman Maclean
#138. Poets talk about "spots of time," but it is really fishermen who experience eternity compressed into a moment. No one can tell what a spot of time is until suddenly the whole world is a fish and the fish is gone. #Quote by Norman Maclean
Fisherman quotes by Oscar Wilde
#139. And I did a strange thing, but what I did matters not, for in a valley that is but a day's journey from this place have I hidden the Mirror of Wisdom. Do but suffer me to enter into thee again and be thy servant, and thou shalt be wiser than all the wise men, and Wisdom shall be thine. Suffer me to enter into thee, and none will be as wise as thou.' But the young Fisherman laughed. 'Love is better than Wisdom,' he cried, 'and the little Mermaid loves me.'

'Nay, but there is nothing better than Wisdom,' said the Soul.

'Love is better,' answered the young Fisherman, and he plunged into the deep, and the Soul went weeping away over the marshes. #Quote by Oscar Wilde
Fisherman quotes by Gustave Flaubert

#141. Scholars have long known that fishing eventually turns men into philosophers. Unfortunately, it is almost impossible to buy decent tackle on a philosopher's salary. #Quote by Patrick F. McManus
Fisherman quotes by Ivan Turgenev
#142. Death is like a fisherman, who, having caught a fish in his net, leaves it in the water for a time; the fish continues to swim about, but all the while the net is round it, and the fisherman will snatch it out in his own good time. #Quote by Ivan Turgenev
Fisherman quotes by Jessica Khoury
#143. I feel the boy's gaze on me, and I turn to him. He is still lying on the sand, propped on one arm, staring at me like a fisherman who has unexpectedly caught a shark in his nets.
I return his gaze with equal candor, adding him up. His stubbled jaw is strong and just slightly crooked, his copper eyes large and expressive, his lips full. A small, cheap earring hangs from his left earlobe. A handsome boy growing into a man's body, already powerfully built. Were he a prince or a renowned warrior, he would have entire harems vying for his attention. As it is, his rough beauty is hidden in his poorly cut clothing. #Quote by Jessica Khoury
Fisherman quotes by Joseph Monninger
#144. I am almost certain fishermen posess a peculiar bend to their makeup. Fisherman are optimists, and the fish in the future is always preferable to the fish at hand. Even the best fishermen catch fish only a small percentage of the time, which means we persevere in a sport that features failure as its main ingredient. Truly great days, when the fish hammer the fly as soon as it lands on the water are rare. #Quote by Joseph Monninger
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#145. Fisherman deceives the fish with bait; this action makes the fisherman dishonest! For a fisherman to be honest, he must not put any bait to his fishhook! He who dares to be ideally honest, let him know how hard it is to be such an honest! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by Kieran Shields
#146. [What a great way to describe how a city takes its unique "shape"...beautiful turn-of-phrase by Kieran Shields(!)]:

"It was a city of slopes, curves, and dips carved by glaciers and now criss-crossed by a network of angled streets and blocks, unfettered by any sense of regularity and uniformity. Portland's maze of cobbled roads was the result of two and a half centuries of fisherman and merchants driven by immediate necessity and that economy of steps that occurs naturally in a place where winters often lasted five months out of the year. #Quote by Kieran Shields
Fisherman quotes by Jules Verne
#147. And Pencroft returned to his work, not without uttering a sigh of regret, for every sailor is a born fisherman, and if the pleasure of fishing is in exact proportion to the size of the animal, one can judge how a whaler feels in sight of a whale. #Quote by Jules Verne
Fisherman quotes by Wendell Berry
#148. All goes back to the earth, and so I do not desire pride of excess or power, but the contentments made by men who have had little: the fisherman's silence receiving the river's grace, the gardener's musing on rows ... #Quote by Wendell Berry
Fisherman quotes by Norman F. Cantor
#149. Christian legend later claimed that Peter also went to Rome and there became head of the Christian community, that is, a bishop. Both Peter and Paul, according to the Catholic version, died as martyrs in the Eternal City. Paul definitely went to Rome, and may have been martyred there. But that Peter, a very devout, timid Jewish fisherman, uneducated, and knowing little or no Greek, and no Latin, would have ended in Rome is most unlikely. Thus the whole claim of later bishops of Rome (the popes) that their authority in the Church was derived from its alleged first bishop, Saint Peter, was likely wishful thinking, if not an absolute hoax, that developed in the late second century A.D. #Quote by Norman F. Cantor
Fisherman quotes by Guy Gavriel Kay
#150. I love the way folktale and fantasy tap into the roots of story telling. The paradox, for me, is that by moving a story into the fantastic we can actually bring it closer to the reader, not move it further away. It is more than an escape. When we read of the only daughter of a fisherman (or the third son of a woodcutter) in a fairy tale, we are all that character. That's the underlying pulse beat of such tales. Using the fantastic as a prism for the past, if done properly, removes the tale from distancing specificity. It can't just be read as unique to a time and place; it is universalized in interesting, powerful ways. When I wrote Tigana, about the way tyranny tries to erase identity in conquered peoples, the fantasy setting seems to have done exactly that: I'm asked in places ranging from Korea to Poland to Croatia to Quebec, "Were you writing about us?"

I was. All of them. That is the point. The fantastic is a tool in the writer's arsenal, as potentially powerful as any there is, and any tool we have works to the benefit of the reader. #Quote by Guy Gavriel Kay
Fisherman quotes by Cynthia Voigt
#151. When she asked him to play a song while she finished, he had to strum chords for a while and pretend to be tuning up until he settled down. He didn't want her to see how unsettled he'd been by the whole thing. How unsettled he still was. He had thought he was the fisherman, but he saw now - She had pronged him, with a single stroke, pronged him through the heart and he was caught. Just like with Melody, caught. But this wasn't Melody, Dicey wasn't. And besides, he didn't feel pronged, he felt - overwhelmed, out of breath, breathless. #Quote by Cynthia Voigt
Fisherman quotes by Lee Wulff

Fisherman quotes by John Burroughs
#157. The fisherman has a harmless, preoccupied look; he is a kind of vagrant, that nothing fears. He blends himself with the trees and the shadows. All his approaches are gentle and indirect. He times himself to the meandering, soliloquizing stream; he addresses himself to it as a lover to his mistress; he woos it and stays with it till he knows its hidden secrets. Where it deepens his purpose deepens; where it is shallow he is indifferent. He knows how to interpret its every glance and dimple; its beauty haunts him for days. #Quote by John Burroughs
Fisherman quotes by John D. Voelker

Fisherman quotes by Sherman Alexie
#159. I've seen only painters and fishermen and I think they're both the same kind of men who made a different choice one time in their lives. The fisherman held a rod in his hand and said yes and the painter held a brush in his hand and said yes and sometimes I hold a beer in my hand and say yes. #Quote by Sherman Alexie
Fisherman quotes by Ruth Sawyer
#160. To be a good storyteller one must be gloriously alive. It is not possible to kindle fresh fires from burned-out embers. I have noticed that the best of the traditional storytellers whom I have heard have been those who live close to the heart of things-to the earth, the sea, wind and weather. They have been those who knew solitude, silence. They have been given unbroken time in which to feel deeply, to reach constantly for understanding. They have come to know the power of the spoken word. These storytellers have been sailors and peasants, wanderers and fisherman. #Quote by Ruth Sawyer
Fisherman quotes by Georges Danton
#161. Oh, it were better to be a poor fisherman than to meddle with the government of men. #Quote by Georges Danton
Fisherman quotes by Randy Bachman
#162. I think if you're a painter, you paint; if you're a golfer, you golf; if you're a fisherman, you fish; if you're a musician, you play music. #Quote by Randy Bachman
Fisherman quotes by Os Hillman
#163. God often uses failure to make us useful. When Jesus called the disciples, He did not go out and find the most qualified and successful people. He found the most willing, and He found them in the workplace. He found a fisherman, a tax collector, and a farmer. The Hebrews knew that failure was a part of maturing in God. The Greeks used failure as a reason for disqualification. Sadly, in the Church, we often treat one another in this way. This is not God's way. We need to understand that failing does not make us failures. It makes us experienced. It makes us more prepared to be useful in God's Kingdom -- if we have learned from it. And that is the most important ingredient for what God wants in His children. #Quote by Os Hillman
Fisherman quotes by Gustave Flaubert
#164. I am an obscure and patient pearl-fisherman who dives into the deepest waters and comes up with empty hands and a blue face. Some fatal attraction draws me down into the abysses of thought, down into those innermost recesses which never cease to fascinate the strong. I shall spend my life gazing at the ocean of art, where others voyage or fight; and from time to time I'll entertain myself by diving for those green and yellow shells that nobody will want. So I shall keep them for myself and cover the walls of my hut with them. #Quote by Gustave Flaubert
Fisherman quotes by John Gay
#165. When if or chance or hunger's powerful sway Directs the roving trout this fatal way, He greedily sucks in the twining bait, And tugs and nibbles the fallacious meat. Now, happy fisherman; now twitch the line! How thy rod bends! behold, the prize is thine! #Quote by John Gay
Fisherman quotes by Ernest Hemingway,
#166. There are many good fishermen and some great ones. But there is only one you. #Quote by Ernest Hemingway,
Fisherman quotes by Fennel Hudson
#167. Could an angler go fishing without a fishing rod, line and hook? It depends what they're fishing for. #Quote by Fennel Hudson
Fisherman quotes by Paul G. Quinnett
#168. In this quiet, peaceful time of twilight there is, in this great circle of life, an awful lot of hunting and fishing and catching and killing and dying and eating going on all around me. As the old fisherman said, 'That's the way with life. Sometimes you eat well; sometimes you are well-eaten.' #Quote by Paul G. Quinnett
Fisherman quotes by Ansel Adams
#169. Wilderness, or wildness is a mystique. A religion, an intense philosophy, a dream of ideal society - these are also mystique. We are not engaged in preserving so many acre-feet of water, so many board-feet of timber, so many billion tons of granite, so many profit possibilities in so many ways for those concerned with the material aspects of the world. Yet, we must accept the fact that human life (at least in the metabolic sense) depends upon the resources of the Earth. As the fisherman depends upon the rivers, lakes and seas, and the farmer upon the land for his existence, so does mankind in general depend upon the beauty of the world about him for his spiritual and emotional existence.

From a speech to The Wilderness Society, May 9 1980 #Quote by Ansel Adams
Fisherman quotes by Herbert Hoover
#170. A good fisherman can secure many regenerative hours in winter, polishing up the rods and reels. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
Fisherman quotes by Arundhati Roy
#171. He began to look wiser
than he really was. Like a fisherman in a city. With sea-secrets in him #Quote by Arundhati Roy
Fisherman quotes by Norman Maclean
#172. Many of us would probably be better fishermen if we did not spend so much time watching and waiting for the world to become perfect #Quote by Norman Maclean
Fisherman quotes by Paulo Coelho
#173. Christ surrounded himself with beggars, prostitutes, tax-collectors and fishermen ... what he meant by this was that the divine spark is in every soul and is never extinguished ... #Quote by Paulo Coelho
Fisherman quotes by Jonathan Stroud
#174. Believe me, I know all about bottle acoustics. I spent much of the sixth century in an old sesame oil jar, corked with wax, bobbing about in the Red Sea. No one heard my hollers. In the end an old fisherman set me free, by which time I was desperate enough to grant him several wishes. I erupted in the form of a smoking giant, did a few lightning bolts, and bent to ask him his desire. Poor old boy had dropped dead of a heart attack. There should be a moral there, but for the life of me I can't see one. #Quote by Jonathan Stroud
Fisherman quotes by Gordon Gekko
#175. A fisherman always sees another fisherman from afar #Quote by Gordon Gekko
Fisherman quotes by Robert Doisneau
#176. You know, they always say that the photographer is a hunter of images. That is a flattering image, the idea of a hunter, it's virile, acquired power. Actually though, it isn't that. We are really fishermen with hooks and lines. #Quote by Robert Doisneau
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#177. When we see a lonely fisherman, we ask where the boat is; when we see a lonely boat, we ask where the fisherman is! We love to see the good friends always together! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by J. Maarten Troost
#178. I made arrangements with Bitaki, a teammate on the soccer team I played with, to go fishing with his brothers, who typically worked the waters off Maiana, the nearest island south of Tarawa. When I mentioned to Sylvia that I was going, she said: "No, you're not." "And what do you mean by 'No, you're not'?" I determined right then that I would go out fishing every week. No, every day. I would become a professional fisherman. I would become sun-browned and sea-weathered. I would smell like fish. I would be a Salty Dog. "I mean," Sylvia said, "that when the engine dies and you start drifting, which will happen, because things like that do seem to happen to you, you will not survive two days. Your skin will fry, you will collapse from dehydration, and because you will be the most useless person on the boat, you will be regarded by the others as a potential food source." I didn't like the imagery here. #Quote by J. Maarten Troost
Fisherman quotes by Jessica Maxwell
#179. These are the technicalities. The jetes and pirouettes.. but the music of the dance lies in the subtle signals between the steps: the fish's delivery of them, the fisherman's read of and response to them, which, if she's good, must be near telepathic. That's what takes a death-grip on your concentration. That's why your mind empties of all trivia, which, when playing a fish, includes just about everything else you could possible think of. That is what anglers live for. #Quote by Jessica Maxwell
Fisherman quotes by Veronica Rossi
#180. No mistaking his accent. He was English. And rich, judging by his threads. Double-breasted coat. Fisherman-style, but the kind you saw on runways, not gangways. He was weaving in place and reeked of alcohol.
That sealed it for me. I hauled off and punched him.
He fell gracefully. Knee, hip, shoulder. Like some part of him had decided,What the heck. I'm passing out tonight anyway. Might as well get started now. #Quote by Veronica Rossi
Fisherman quotes by Joseph Monninger
#181. Bears are extremely human, even down to their footprints. But I am also a fly fisherman, so I have fished beside brown bears in Alaska and was once charged by a black bear. I love bears. #Quote by Joseph Monninger
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#182. If a fish votes for the fisherman, he votes for its own ruin! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by Jay Cooke
#183. I was a hunter and fisherman, and many a time I have slipped out into the woods and prairies at 4 a.m. and brought home plenty of game, or have gone in a canoe to the cove and brought back a good supply of fresh fish. #Quote by Jay Cooke
Fisherman quotes by Sherry Weddell
#184. Simon, the fisherman, before his meeting with Christ, however thoroughly he might have searched within himself, could not possibly have found a trace of Peter. #Quote by Sherry Weddell
Fisherman quotes by Gene Hill
#185. When you fall in a river, you're no longer a fisherman; you're a swimmer. #Quote by Gene Hill
Fisherman quotes by Mrs. Oliphant
#186. Na, she's righted again," said a cool young fisherman, "and they've gotten down that unchancy mast. They maun have stout hearts and skeely hands that work her; but it's for life, and that learns folk baith pith and lear. There! - but it's owre now. #Quote by Mrs. Oliphant
Fisherman quotes by Anna Banks
#187. The tornadic bundle of legs and arms and feet and hands push farther into the kitchen until only the occasional flailing limb is visible from the living room, where I can't believe I'm still standing.
A spectator in my own life, I watch the supernova of my two worlds colliding: Mom and Galen. Human and Syrena. Poseidon and Triton. But what can I do? Who should I help? Mom, who lied to me for eighteen years, then tried to shank my boyfriend? Galen, who forgot this little thing called "tact" when he accused my mom of being a runaway fish-princess? Toraf, who…what the heck is Toraf doing, anyway? And did he really just sack my mom like an opposing quarterback?
The urgency level for a quick decision elevates to right-freaking-now. I decide that screaming is still best for everyone-it's nonviolent, distracting, and one of the things I'm very, very good at.
I open my mouth, but Rayna beats me to it-only, her scream is much more valuable than mine would have been, because she includes words with it. "Stop it right now, or I'll kill you all!" She pushed past me with a decrepit, rusty harpoon from God-knows-what century, probably pillaged from one of her shipwreck excursions. She waves it at the three of them like a crazed fisherman in a Jaws movie. I hope they don't notice she's got it pointed backward and that if she fires it, she'll skewer our couch and Grandma's first attempt at quilting.
It works. The bare feet and tennis shoes stop scuffling-out of fear or sh #Quote by Anna Banks
Fisherman quotes by David Bayles
#188. Today, indeed, you can find urban white artists - people who could not reliably tell a coyote from a german shepherd at a hundred feet - casually incorporating the figure of Coyote the Trickster into their work. A premise common to all such efforts is that power can be borrowed across space and time. It cannot. There's a difference between meaning that is embodied and meaning that is referenced. As someone once said, no one should wear a Greek fisherman's hat except a Greek fisherman. CANON #Quote by David Bayles
Fisherman quotes by Dorothy L. Sayers
#189. The fisherman-painter has the best of the bargain as far as the weather goes, for the weather that is too bright for the trout deluges his hills and his sea with floods of radiant colour; the rain that interrupts picture-making puts water into the rivers and the lochs and sends him hopefully forth with rod and creel; while on cold dull days, when there is neither purple on the hills nor fly on the river, he can join a friendly party in a cosy bar and exchange information about Cardinals and March Browns, and practise making intricate knots in gut. #Quote by Dorothy L. Sayers
Fisherman quotes by Jay Kristoff
#190. Fisherman?", Butcher scoffed. "I ought to box your bloody ears, girl. Could a fisherman slay Caelinus the Longshanks in single combat in front of twenty thousand people? Or gut Marcinio of the Werewood like a fish?"
"Aye", Sid said. "A fisherman could probably gut a man like a fish, Butcher."
"I was a pirate, you fucking cunts", the Liisian blustered.
"But...", Mia frowned. "You were seasick, Butcher. You spewed your guts out the entire way from Whitekeep to Galante."
"Well, I was a shitty pirate, wasn't I?", the man cried. "How d'you think I ended up a damned slave?"
"O...", Mia nodded. "That... makes a surprising amount of sense, actually."
"Point is I grew up here", Butcher scowled. "I know this city like I know women."
Ash raised her hand --
"Don't", Mia hissed. #Quote by Jay Kristoff
Fisherman quotes by Pearl S. Buck
#191. No writer, I believe, should attempt a novel before he is thirty, and not then unless he has been hopelessly and helplessly involved in life. For the writer who goes out to find material for a novel, as a fishermen goes out to sea to fish, will certainly not write a good novel. Life has to be lived thoughtlessly, unconsciously, at full tilt and for no purpose except its own sake before it becomes, eventually, good material for a novel. #Quote by Pearl S. Buck
Fisherman quotes by Paul Schullery
#192. Fishing is a quest for knowledge and wonder as much as a pursuit of fish. #Quote by Paul Schullery
Fisherman quotes by Megyn Kelly
#193. Diane is my spiritual guide. She is a Duke- and Harvard-educated oyster fisherman in Cape Cod. Now there's something you don't hear every day. Like Jackie and Doug, she does not seek the spotlight. #Quote by Megyn Kelly
Fisherman quotes by Mehmet Murat Ildan
#194. Wise man is a lake full with fishes; clever man is a fisherman who often visits this lake! #Quote by Mehmet Murat Ildan
Fisherman quotes by David Lynch
#195. They say that negative things like stress, anxiety, tension, sorrow, and depression "squeeze the tube" so ideas don't flow through it. But if you get rid of that negativity, which goes away naturally when you transcend every day, these ideas are more freely flowing, and you get happy in the doing. You get fresh and inspiring ideas, and a bigger picture starts to emerge of the world and life. It's very good for the artist, businessman, fisherman, and any kind of person really. #Quote by David Lynch
Fisherman quotes by Stephen King
#196. Who is going to be the fish in this relationship, and who is going to be the fisherman? #Quote by Stephen King
Fisherman quotes by Dalai Lama XIV
#197. Anger or hatred is like a fisherman's hook. It is very important for us to ensure that we are not caught by it. #Quote by Dalai Lama XIV
Fisherman quotes by Hanya Yanagihara
#198. but he had seen lots of women behave this way around Willem. They all had. Their friend Lionel used to say that Willem must have been a fisherman in a past life, because he couldn't help but attract pussy. #Quote by Hanya Yanagihara
Fisherman quotes by Ben Dover
#199. There was a fisherman named Fisher who fished for some fish in a fissure. Till a fish with a grin, pulled the fisherman in. Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher. 2 How many cookies could a good cook cook If a good cook could cook cookies? A good cook could cook as much cookies as a good cook who could cook cookies. #Quote by Ben Dover
Fisherman quotes by Herbert Hoover
#200. Lots of people committed crimes during the year who would not have done so if they had been fishing. The increase of crime is among those deprived of the regenerations that impregnate the mind and character of the fisherman. #Quote by Herbert Hoover
